In a joint statement, Markel co-chief executive officers Thomas S. Gayner and Richard R. Whitt commented: “Our 2021 results show what we can achieve when all three of our operating engines – insurance, investments, and Markel Ventures – power us forward.

“Each contributed in meaningful ways to a record-setting 2021 across many financial metrics, including operating revenues and operating income, among others.”

The Markel Ventures segment spans a portfolio of businesses from different industries.

Meanwhile, the co-CEOs added: “Our underwriting operations delivered a 90% combined ratio, which reflected the impact of recent underwriting actions we’ve taken to enhance our profitability while growing gross premium volume to $8.5 billion.”

The duo also thanked Markel’s employees, trading partners, and customers for their “tremendous” role in the latest set of financial results.
